Ed Belfour, a longtime villain in St. Louis as goalie for the Chicago Blackhawks, has been hired by the Blues as a goaltending consultant.
Blues fans no doubt recall with fondness the days when the derisive chants of “BELLL-four! BELLL-four!” rained down from the rafters at the old Arena on Oakland Avenue.
Belfour played 18 seasons in the NHL with Chicago, San Jose, Toronto and Florida.
“Ed is one of the winngest goaltenders in National Hockey League history and we’re thrilled to have him on our staff,” Blues president John Davidson said in a news release. “His knowledge of the position will be invaluable for our goaltenders in Peoria and the young goalies in our ogranization.”

For any team seeking a goaltending upgrade, Ed Belfour is tanned, rested and ready.
The future Hall of Famer, who turned 44 last April, is working out near his suburban Dallas home as he seeks a return to the NHL. Agent Ron Salcer confirmed that his long-time client has asked him to contact clubs to determine any interest level.
Eddie Belfour has arrived in Sweden.
